READER Writes about Cars and Photos of Glass

The following note and photo are from Larry Thompson - son of Harry Thompson (retired Blenko Glass craftsmen http://www.theblenkoproject.org/) .

Hillary, When Harry's granddaughter started going to Blenko with us these are the first items she picked out. She did the painting in highschool and it hung in the Superintendents ofice for a year. Harrys grategrandauter now has her art work hanging in the superintendents office.... granddaughter drives a Saturn. Bev drives a Prus and I drive a beat up pickup full of tools..
Thanks Larry T.
